McPherson High sophomore Ben Pyle has been mentioned in “Mullen’s High Profile U-15 recap.”
Pyle, who is expected to start for McPherson High’s boys basketball team this season after playing a key role off the bench last year in the Bullpups’ 25-0 championship run, was one of the few small-town players to receive mention. The recap basically includes players from Metro areas such as Kansas City and St. Louis.
The review, which was based off a recent AAU tournament, said this:
“Slender swing man who could score from just about anywhere. One team went to a box-and-one defense to try to slow him down.”
Among the other players mentioned was Bol Bol, who was at Bishop Miege this year but did not play on the varsity. The son of the late Manute Bol, a former NBA player, Bol Bol is 6-10 and plays for KC Run GMC.
